Can't Decide...

What to take with me on my hols on Friday. We are off to lay in the sun (hopefully) for 2 weeks and I need to take knitting with me. I will take and hopefully finish Portia, as she is nearly done now, but I need something else too. I was thinking Hemlock Ring Blankie. It looks a bit complicated, and I need something I can do while playing Rummikub in the evenings. Yes, I said that...Rob takes about an hour to decide where to go with his tiles and so you tend to need another interest or else the game is extremely boring!!!!! So knitting is good, but I need something I can pick up and put down when it's my turn, and I'm quick!

I just had a look in some afghan books I have. I thought it might be nice to knit a balnket or the winter that started by a pool in the summer. I found Floor Coverings and Denim Hearts in the Debbie Abrahams book, but then when I did a pattern search, I found Flower Power Afghan. Check it out, it's beautiful. A lot of yarn in those things though, and will I get it in time? Will I have enough in my stash for Hemlock? Will I get stuck on the pattern in the south of France and have no computer to get help from you guys?

Maybe I should just knit a st st scarf...........

Haha! St. St. scarf may be the way to go! Haha!

Putting down and picking up Hemmie real quick is NOT the way to go! Haha!
You have to concentrate on the heart of the blankie after that it is smooth sailing on all the St. St. rows, but then you gotta pay extra close attention to your pattern rows!
